Newry Rainbow Community Night of Sacred Music and Prayer

May 12, 2014

For the second year in a row, Newry Rainbow Community, in conjunction with Changing Attitude Ireland, is hosting a night of Sacred Music and Scripture readings at St Catherine’s Dominican Church in Newry this Friday 16th May.

The night is organised to mark IDAHO day on the 17th (International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia) and the event also forms part of the first Northern Ireland Anti Homophobia and Transphobia Week.

Columba O’Hare, Newry Rainbow Community commented: “It is really important for people in our community to feel welcome and have a sense of belonging to whatever religion or church they grew up with. We were all extremely moved by the warm welcome and special atmosphere at last year’s event in the beautiful Dominican Church and are extremely grateful to all at St Catherine’s especially the Prior Fr Ralph, for helping make this happen again this year.

“Small gestures really do make a massive difference.”

Thursday’s proceedings will begin at 8.15pm in the Dominican and will include songs and readings and a short reflection from Richard O’Leary, Chair of Changing Attitude Ireland, followed by a cup of tea in the Dominican Hall.

All are welcome.
